“Flat”… “Unconvincing”.

January 27, 2011

Those are some of the more common reactions I’ve heard. Some of our readers have been a little more pointed in their comments about the Obama Show on Tuesday night… like a lot of Conservatives who have come to the conclusion that Obama never says anything new. He just rehashes stuff he’s already said, putting fresh lipstick on the pig time after time.

Actually, I had decided not to listen to Obama’s little extravaganza for just that reason. I felt I knew what he was going to say. The radio that I listen to when I’m writing betrayed me, and once President Obama started speaking I left it on.

I wasn’t disappointed. He spouted about 1950s Russian Sputniks and roofing companies reinventing themselves. He talked about all the neat things he was going to do for business instead of to business. Gee, that would be a nice change.

Barack has a problem. He can get people to listen to him. Getting people to believe him is another story altogether. He is learning the lesson that all liars learn sooner or later. You can only go to the well just so many times and then even the thickest airheads start seeing the light.

He still has the considerable power of the bully pulpit… he still has the slavish devotion of the main stream media and their influence, greatly diminished though it may be.
What he doesn’t have is the American people. Obama has been tried in the court of the mind of the American citizen and was found wanting.

Prom Night.

January 26, 2011

The only thing missing was Barney Frank as Prom Queen… well, queen anyway. I can’t tell you how uncomfortable I felt when our chosen warriors were duped into the ridiculous pose of sitting with the opposition, to illustrate some sort of new ‘tone’ at the State of the Union show.

Many times I’ve talked about and warned the Republicans about letting the opposition control the message. Time after time we’ve allowed them to do it to us. And time after time they have succeeded, simply because they were allowed to.

I thought with the advent of the new Congress we would see a Republican party of much sterner stuff than the wishy-washy, panty-waisted establishment types which we’ve all come to recognize and despise. The only reason the left engineered this touching nouveaux amis was so that the visual of the huge Republican numbers wouldn’t be broadcast to millions of American homes during prime time. It’s a significant difference in numbers, and it shows.

What bothers me most is that a ten year old could have seen this coming a block away. The left playing off of the emotional backwash of the Tucson tragedy, the whole thing reminiscent of the anti-gun, anti-conservative frenzy whipped up by the Democrats, after James S. Brady was paralyzed during the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley Jr.

The only reason the clearly unconstitutional Brady bill was enabled to be passed was that principled Republicans did not make a stand on behalf of the second amendment.
It’s time, it’s long past time, for our Conservative Republicans to assert themselves.

The ‘New Tone’ Is The Same Tired Tune.

January 20, 2011

In the first place, I don’t want my representatives cozying up to the Marxists who have done, and are doing, everything in their power to destroy this country. So I urge you, as Patriots, to contact your representatives and tell them we won’t appreciate their little tete a tete with the Democrats at the State of the Union speech.

Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin announced that they will sit together for the State of the Union address. “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.”- Shakespeare.

As for the ‘new tone’… it’s newspeak for idiots. The DeMarxists have reverted to their passive-aggressive role with guilt, vituperation and outrageous falsehoods towards all. This is their new tone. What it means is surrender for Conservatives, in order to gain some semblance of cooperation from the left side of the aisle.

It’s the same sort of political scam they’ve pulled for almost forever. What’s even more remarkable is that Republicans have fallen for it time after time. All the leftists have had to do, up to the present time, is yank out the guilt card and we’d all cower down and go into our sickening accommodation mode.

Being sold out and sold down the creek by generations of our own party has left most conservatives a skeptical bunch… much more prone to asking pointed questions in their pursuit of the truth. Our response to the assault of the leftists has got to be as pragmatic as it is simple.

Say ‘no!’… Just say ‘no’ and keep saying ‘no’. The DeMarxists back down virtually each and every time they are confronted with principled truths. If they can’t change the story line they’re out of luck.
That’s our job, folks… to sink the liberals and keep them sunk.
